Do you want to be closer to Christ? Then pick up your cross and everything that the cross entails – humiliation, insults, judgment, anger, isolation, betrayal, death.

I so desperately wanted a road that leads to God that bypassed suffering. That road, however, did not lead to God. But only to death.

There is no road to God that does not pass through Golgatha. The path to Him is only through the fire.
